Nice local boozer
Great place with lots of events happening, from bingo and Elvis party nights, to live music and family fun days. Really good if you are into your live sport as they show all the big events across multiple screens. Nice beer garden with a large children's play area, and a climbing frame to keep the little ones amused. More...
Fantastic time had at The Black Bull over the weekend. The place was mobbed, which really added to the atmosphere, yet the staff coped brilliantly so you didn't have too wait long for a drink. Great live sport venue with both the rugby and football shown on big screens. More...
Great traditional local pub that has recently had a makeover by the new owners.Best place for live sport in Chelmsford as they can show multiple events at the same time, and have possibly the biggest projector screen I have ever seen!Traditional pub grub, and all main meals half price on a Thursday which was very welcome whilst watching the start of the Ashes.

Was here over the weekend with my family, ordered burgers and chips for the kids. Portions were huge and the burgers were really good quality, nice and fresh. The garlic bread with cheese is absolutely gorgeous. Nice to see a family friendly pub and a dog station that if you wanted to bring a dog, there is fresh water, poo bags and treats. Well done and keep up the good work xx More...
